“Join the Honor Indigenous Women group of the peoples during the Women’s March in Phoenix. Rise awareness of the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women crisis. #MMIW

84% of Native American women experience violence in their lifetime. But outside of Indian Country, few people are aware of this epidemic. It’s time to raise awareness and show that these women are. #NotInvisible

We are here to honor and remember our women, our sisters and our youth who have been stolen from us. We will be a voice for them.#NoMoreStolenSisters

We stand against the images that perpetuates a belief that Indigenous Women are free to be characterized, exotified, and sexualized.#NotYourCostume

We stand to stop the dehumanization. #NotYourMascot

We recognize that these issues also connect to the struggle of the continued assaults and desecration on Mother Earth. #MeToo

Represent your participation by wearing RED (traditional/ regalia). Please, donate one side of your earring to be added to an art piece at the end of the March. We welcome Indigenous peoples who will sing and drum in honor of the Indigenous Women.”

More information still coming soon.
